EARN YOUR STRIPE
This stripe signifies Hells 500 riders who have completed either an Everesting, or have notched up more than 10,000 vertical meters in a ride. Either way it’s bloody tough. They have put their blood, sweat, and tears into that sucka. When you see the grey stripe out on the road you know you are looking at one hard bastard.
Hells 500 are the creators and custodians of the everesting concept. It’s a fiendishly simple concept, and a fiendishly difficult ride to complete. Pick any climb, anywhere in the world and ride repeat after grinding repeat until you have notched up 8,848m vert. In one ride. All the kids are talking about it these days.
